      A Florida man is accused of masquerading as a doctor to treat patients suffering problems with their mental well-being.

      Phillip Jay Stutzman, 42, a life coach of Sarasota, is charged with three felony counts of unlicensed practice of a health care profession. Sarasota Police Department arrested Stutzman on Thursday.

      According to the affidavit, Stutzman claimed his alter-ego Dr. Phillip Nikao had a masters in neuroscience and a doctorate in psychology, using these allegedly bogus credentials to provide services since 2016.

      “He provides services ranging from coaching to sexual abuse and trauma, with no such training,” the complainant, a former client, told police. “His advertisements and sales pitches are based on his education and experience with leaders in the industry to convince clients to pay very high rates for his services, while putting people at risk by trusting his professional advice as a doctor.”

      Business cards and internet searches showed Stutzman presenting himself as Dr. Nikao, officers said.

      I’ve never heard of “keto” as a thing, other than as a diet regimen (ketogenic diet) – and you can’t “give” that to someone as a payment.  Anybody know what “keto” they are referring to?
